The Kent Chamber of Commerce has announced the 42nd annual Kent Pumpkin Run set for Oct. 28.

In addition to the race, food, prizes, a costume contest, music and more will be offered

The first 500 registered runners will receive a commemorative performance shirt.

Festivities will begin with a kids’ fun run at 11:15 a.m., followed by the 5-mile run/walk at noon.

Both races will begin and end on the Kent Green in front of the Kent Town Hall.

Runners wearing costumes will have a double chance to win - once as a runner and once for a clever costume.

Judges will review costumes and determine the winners.

The cost to register for the Pumpkin Run is $25 before Oct. 19 and $30 after.
